Bottle. Pours clear and yellow with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Light aroma of grain, perhaps carboard. Flavor is slightly sweet grainy. Light bitter finish. Surprisingly rich mouthfeel.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
Bottle (5%), from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Gold, thin but lasting white head and low condition. Low sweet grainy malt and herbal hoppiness in the nose, quite fruity in the mouth with some malty sweetness and a pleasant tingle of hop bitterness which lingers into the finish, some estery notes develop with time.

wlajwl (3772) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Aroma is grains and tea-like but not quite. The flavor is heavy on the grains, along with fruit and a flavoring to the grains that I can’t quite place. Different and decent enough pale lager.

DanielBrown (3748) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
Bottle from Lithuanica, Birmingham. Doesn’t smell great - very sweetcorny. Very pale, little head. Taste is smooth with lots of cakey flavour and some dolly mixture. Perhaps a bit of candied fruit. Pretty light and easy to drink. Haven’t totally made up my mind here. It’s reasonable.

gunnar (5160) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2011
Can as gift from my gf. Pours pale golden with a big white head. Aroma of sweet corn and hops. Taste is sweet grainy, watery mouthfeel, with a low but noticeable bitterness towards the end. Not the worst of pale lagers.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
Pale straw colored pour with a tight white head. The aroma is simple. Pale malt and a touch of light hoppiness, but not much else. Simple, clean tasting brew.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 11, 2011
A: The pour is a clear golden straw with a small white head. S: Same pruney, cloying sugar smell as many other lagers from the region. Horribly sweet with a little bit of metal and bleach. Apple juice and corn syrup only add to the problem. T: Sweet corn syrup and cereal all the way. Mild malt flavor gives just a bit of bread. No hop character or bitterness at all. Straw flavor is pretty much all the contrast you get from it. M: Light to medium in body with a medium carbonation. O: I don’t think I’ll be repeating my purchase.

crossovert (7020) - Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Described as an ale but more than likely an EPL. 500ml brown bottle. It pours a straight gold with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates with no lacing. The smell is grainy with some noble hops, nothing offensive, average. The flavor is pretty crappy though. it is sweet and husky with some very blunt malt flavors. Not that great.

Pale gold & clear. Thick white head that stuck around for a while. Cereal dominates the nose. Soft, creamy mouthfeel, with a smooth finish. The aroma is mostly cereal, and the hops give it a light bitterness. That bitterness gets sharper along the way, but overall an easy-going lager. My first foray into Latvian beer has been an enjoyable one.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Spicy hop aroma. Yellow colour. Cereal biscuit flavour. Not a bad lager.
